Edward Wilding Interview
DAMAN: One of the most recent campaigns we saw you in was Nautica’s. What was it like shooting for that one?
Edward Wilding: Nautica is a great client. It’s lovely to get out to the U.S. and work with the same team each time.
DA: How busy are you usually throughout a typical year? Are there any peak seasons where you’re especially busy?
EW: I’m lucky to be busy all year round and have lots of regular clients. I also try to balance being away with being at home too. I have young children and it’s great to be able to be around and watch them grow up.
DA: In general, what does it take for a professional male model these days to be successful?
EW: I think it depends entirely on the client. Some clients prefer the classic look and others go for a more editorial look. The only thing you can do as a model is be professional, turn up on time and take care of yourself—health wise. The rest is out of your control. [Laughs]
DA: How would you say does social media fit in all that? How important is having a strong online presence for your career?
EW: Social media, in my eyes, has become one of the key factors in the modelling industry these days. Also from the brands’ point of view, if you can reach a greater audience with your advertising then surely that must be a plus.
DA: On a lighter note, what do you see as the most enjoyable part of modelling?
EW: Travelling and seeing the world is definitely a great bonus in this industry.
DA: By the way, when you arrive on the set of a major photo shoot, how do you usually prepare yourself? How do you, as they say, “switch it on”?
EW: Normally with a double espresso and a quick look at the mood board to get an understanding of what the client has in their mind.
DA: Looking back a bit along your career, which photo shoot, campaign or show do you credit as the one that really put you on the map?
EW: The Versace campaign with Kate Moss, I think, was my first big break. The campaign had a great reach with the rest of the industry and helped a lot.
DA: Have you ever thought about what you’d be doing if modelling didn’t work out back then and you had to pick something else?
EW: I would have loved to go down a sport related job, possibly as a physiotherapist.
DA: So, we’ve seen you on the runways of big maisons, on the campaigns of big brands, but how do you usually dress when you’re not working? What’s your go-to “off-duty model” look?
EW: Normally I’m in gym-wear, even when I’m not actually in the gym. [Laughs]
DA: Can you tell us some of your pet peeves when it comes to fashion and styling?
EW: I like to keep things matching, even matching my cycling clothing to my bike!
